Whare Kea Chalet

The Whare Kea Chalet experience re-defines a luxury approach to the Alpine world. Whare Kea Chalet offers luxury accommodation and a spectacular base for those looking for the ultimate alpine adventure in an exclusive location high in the mountains on the edge of Mt Aspiring National Park.

Located at 1750 metres (5700 feet) in the Albert Burn Saddle on the north side of Dragonfly Peak, Whare Kea Chalet is a 15-minute scenic helicopter flight from the Aspiring Helicopters Matukituki Valley base. With two double bedrooms and a spacious loft, the chalet provides comfortable accommodation for up to six guests, and a bunkroom for two staff. Relaxed yet luxurious, the Chalet has power, a hot shower and large windows framing astounding views of Mount Cook and Mount Aspiring with its tumbling glaciers.
